Graphic Nature are kicking off 2023 with their debut album, and it’s going to be a heavy one.
Graphic Nature have announced the details of their hotly-anticipated debut album.
It’s going to be called ‘a mind waiting to die’ and will be dropping on February 17 via Rude Records.
Vocalist Harvey Freeman had this to say about it:
“This is our debut album. We wrote the entirety of the record during lockdown when things were at their darkest. A lot of the lyrical content stems from personal experience and challenges with mental health and isolation.
“Each song has a different subject, much like our previous tracks. We dive deep into depression, thoughts that lead you to a very dark place, frustration, sensory overload, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues etc. It’s a lot to take in and we’ve portrayed it in what we believe to be a perfect representation of how our heads process these things: pure anger over heavy riffs and drum beats. It’s what we do.”
The artwork looks like this:
And the tracklisting like this:
03. Into The Dark
04. Killing Floor
06. White Noise
08. Bad Blood
09. Twisted Fear
11. Death Wish
12. A Twin
13. The Downpour
They’ve shared a new song as well, and it is a twisted one.
Written from the mind of someone who wants to do despicable things, it is a crushing, discomforting piece of mind-melting aggression.
Harvey had this to say about it:
“Killing floor is an interesting song. I wrote the lyrics in a completely different style to any song we’ve ever written before. Usually I write about things that I go through in day to day life, emotions that I struggle with. But this track is very different, I wrote the song from the perspective of a wannabe serial killer…someone that isn’t seen by the public eye but craves the attention and thrill of the consequences that come with killing another human being.
The character from the video has watched far too many movies and takes things quite literally. If you’re an avid film watcher you will see many references to certain movies and tv shows like American Psycho, The Zodiac, Joker, Dexter etc. He also based his “mask” on characters like Mankind from WWE and Hush from Batman.
There’s a certain dark humour to his movements and actions. How he speaks to himself and dances around the room. He keeps a journal of people he’s stalking currently. He is very amateur but thinks he’s the best at his craft. The song itself is probably one of our more creative songs we’ve written.”
